Example User Macro - NoPrint

This example demonstrates how to create a user macro that can contain text that is visible when viewing a page, but does not print. 

Before you start, see Writing user macros for an introduction to creating your own user macros. 

Defining the 'NoPrint' user macro

To create the 'Hello World' user macro:

  1. Go to  > General Configuration > User Macros.
  2. Choose Create a User Macro.
  3. Enter the macro details (see table below)
  4. Choose Add.
Field Value
Macro name noprint
Visibility Visible to all users in the Macro Browser
Macro Title No Print
Description Hides text from printed output.
Categories Confluence Content
Icon URL You can leave this field blank
Documentation URL You can leave this field blank
Macro body processing Rendered

Enter the code below in the template field.

## @noparams
<div class="NoPrint">$body</div>

Using the 'NoPrint' Macro on a page

Now you can add the macro to your Confluence page using the Macro Browser. Text entered into the body of the macro placeholder will not be printed, but will appear when the page is viewed online.
